Turn the Command Dial while holding down the Shooting Mode button to cycle through the different shooting modes. The one you want is the overlapping frames. The shooting mode button is just to the left of the viewfinder, next to the Bracket button.

For full details, refer to the "Choosing a Shooting Mode" section in your manual.

How do I get a wireless remote to work? I have read the manual but still do not understand how to use it. I am new to this camera and learn better hands on than reading a book.


Assuming you're referring to the ML-L3 remote, you need to set the camera's shooting model to one of the two remote modes. The quick-response remote mode fires the shutter when you press the button on the remote. The delayed remote mode gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back before firing the shutter.

To change the camera's shooting mode, press the shooting mode button (overlapping rectangles) and turn the main command dial (on the back of the camera). The quick-response remote mode is indicated by a picture of the remote. The delayed remote mode is indicated by the remote and a one-handed clock.

The remote needs to be pointed in the general direction of the receiver on the front of the camera, above the "D70" nameplate.

Set the camera's shooting mode to one of the two remote modes. The quick-response remote mode fires the shutter when you push the button on the remote. The delayed remote mode gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back before firing the shutter. Now point the remote at the infrared sensor on the front of the camera and push the button. If the camera fires, then everything is working.

You might also try wiping both the infrared sensor on the camera and the emitter on the remote with a soft clean cloth.

You can do this in continues mode go here

You set this at:

You get one shot with one press of the shutter button BUT, if you hold the shutter button down you get 3 frames per second.

Speedlight SB-600 TTL Flash: When I set my SB600 (mounted on D70) to TTL or TTL...


the sync speed for the sb-600 is onlt 1/200 on most cameras i think so if your shutter is faster then that then all you will see is black/ the curtans behind the shutter.

basicly just try again with a slower shutter speed

Is there a self timer option on the D70?


Hi David,
The D70 has a setting on the timer, and the explanation can also be found in your manual on page 105.
Steps:
1. go to your "Custom Setting" menu (looks like a pencil) and go down to item 24, "Self-Timer." Select the number of seconds delay you desire.

2. Press the "Format" button and rotate the main dial until you see a small clock symbol on the Control Panel.

3. The camera is now ready for delayed shutter. Don't forget to set the "Format" back to S for single shooting afterwards.


Hope this helps,

Andrew

The mirror in the my nikon d 70 is stuck in the middle and gives me message ERROR and LO F4 when i push to take a picture.


Try setting the camera to the 'M' manual mode and remove the lens. See if the shutter will fire and complete the cycle. You should have a memory card installed or have the menu set to 'No CF card'. If the shutter does fire, then re-mount the lens and return the mode to 'P'. If it does not fire the shutter, then it is likely the there is a malfunction with the mirror box components (a broken spring). That type of repair is not a DIY and will require a complete dis-assembly of the camera.

Shutter release delay


I have same problem with my Rebel XTI and asked the problem to Canon USA. Here is the answer of Canon USA and it seems worked with my camera.

Resetting the camera back to default standards may solve the problem.
Please put the camera in AF mode instead of MF. In order to reset the camera back to default standards, we recommend you perform the following
steps:

1. Turn the camera ON in the P (Program) Mode.

2. Press the MENU button.

3. Scroll over to the Tools2 menu, then scroll down to Clear all settings.

4. Highlight the Clear all settings option and press the SET button.

5. Highlight the OK option and press the SET button.

At this point, the camera should be reset back to factory standards.
Also, try a different lens. If the camera still does not work, then the camera will need to be serviced.

Hoping to help finding a way to solve your problem.

Continuous mode


i think the frame rate is 1.3 frames per second.

Issue:
How do I set Continuous Shooting?
Solution: Setting Continuous Shooting mode PowerShot SD750 and SD1000.

Continuous Shooting In this mode, the camera shoots continuously while the shutter button is held down. Recording ceases when the shutter button is released. In addition, under the following conditions, continuous shooting can occur at a consistent interval until the SD card is full*.
  • A resolution and compression combination other than 145.gif and 129.gif is selected.
    * If continuous shooting suddenly stops, the SD card may be full.
Continuous shooting is available in all modes except 171.gif[AUTO], stitch_assist_icon.gif[Stitch Assist], coloraccentdropper.gif[Color Accent] and colorswapdropper.gif[Color Swap].
To set Continuous Shooting
  1. Press the cont_icon.gifbutton to display cont_icon.gif.

    cont_menu.gif
  2. Shoot the image.

    The camera will continue to record successive images while the shutter button is fully pressed. Recording will cease when the shutter button is released, the card is full or the card does not support a write speed to allow continuous shooting to continue.
To Cancel Continuous Shooting
  1. Press the cont_icon.gif button twice to display single_icon.gif.
caution_a70.gifTo enhance the continuous shooting performance when you suspect the speed has dropped, you are recommended to format the SD card in the camera (Low Level Format) after you save all its images to your computer. note_icon_a70.gif
  • The interval between shots may lengthen slightly when the camera's built-in memory fills.
  • If the flash is firing, the interval between shots will lengthen to accommodate the flash's charging requirements.

D70s problem


Check the exposure compensation setting to ensure it's set for +/-0. To do this, set the camera for Program mode. Locate the exposure compensation mode button - it's the button with a +/- on it immediately behind the on/off switch. With the camera on, hold down this button. If it shows anything other than "0", use the main command dial (the wheel on the back) to change to setting to 0.

The reason the camera works in the Auto mode is because the exposure compensation settings are not available in auto mode, but are available in Program (P), Aperature (A) and Shutter (S) modes.

Hope this helps you!
